Paper Abstract

A monolithic triaxial accelerometers based on thick-film technology is presented, and its structure and operating principle are discussed in this paper. Design and fabrication for the accelerometers are described together with theoretical predications and FEM analysis. The sensing elements on elastic membrane were analyzed in particular by COSMOS/M FEM and its geometric structure parameters were optimized. The overall performance of the device suggests that with proper control of screen-printing and firing processes, many applications in advanced industrial requirements will be possible in the near future.
